We would like to see the ability to administer and manage the solution through Enterprise Manager 13c, and development of the dashboards that are generally missing.Some of our customers were asking about latency when the application wants to get to the database.The product monitors only the database and not the operating systems.One feature that is missing is the ability to have a secret server that is always encrypted.Customized reporting is something that we are struggling with, and it is quite tough for us.This solution doesn't audit the network.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good.The pricing over-all depends on the entry level. For example, if support and maintenance are about $20,000 - $25,000, the initial cost can be five times more. It is less expensive for the company to maintain the client than to make the deployment.Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume.There is an annual licensing fee for upgrading the device.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and it is a good value for the money.The cost of support for this solution is very expensive.
